Last years gleaning service collected over 346,000lbs of fresh fruit to the food bank. “This is healthy food that most people on a struggling budget can’t afford.” said Jesse Ramirez, founder and president of the food bank. “Instead of letting it all go to waste, we can send a team out to your property and collect the much needed fruit and then get it into the hands of people in need. It really is a win-win for the community.” The gleaning service is $15 per tree and can be scheduled by contacting via email gleaners@YourFoodBank.org or by calling (623) 583-FOOD (3663).
Scheduled services are Monday – Friday 8am - 4pm and is running from now until May 31, 2014. The food bank will service the following valley locations: Sun City, Surprise, Sun City West, Peoria, Glendale, El Mirage and Youngtown.
